Class 6 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 6
Teacher: Mrs Grealis
The children will know about the Ascension and what it was like for the disciples. They will understand what happened at Pentecost and how the Spirit transformed the Apostles before deepening their understanding of Peter, the Apostle, and how the Holy Spirit transformed him and worked through the Apostles, reflecting on how this experiences can help us. They will understand the transformation that took place in Paul and how his teaching can help us before finally learning that the popes are successors of St. Peter and lead us to Jesus.
Our text this half term is Manfish, a poetic narrative about the life of Jacques Cousteau. The children will use relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, when, whose, that or an omitted relative pronoun, use a wide range of devices to build cohesion e.g. conjunctions, synonyms, adverbials, punctuation, use a colon to introduce a list and semi-colons within lists and use hyphens to avoid ambiguity.
‘The Midnight Hour’ by Benjamin Read and Laura Trinder will be our main class text for this half term, with which we will develop our retrieval and inference skills. We will also explore extracts from other texts in our daily Whole Class Guided Reading Sessions.
We actively encourage all children to read as much as possible as home. Please help to support our in class learning by encouraging your child to read a range of genres reguarly at home. Some children will have a reading book that is provided by school and some children will be able to choose their own appropriate books. Everybody is encouraged to have a 'Reading for Pleasure' book.
Spelling tests will be held weekly (on Mondays). It is important that all children are practising their spelling patterns throughout the week to ensure that they go into their long term memory.
Our P.E. day is usually a Friday (although this may change) and children should come to school in their kit. Throughout May and June, we will be taking part in a Cricket lesson every Tuesday afternoon, so the children should come to school in their P.E. kits. School hoodies and jogging bottoms can be purchased online with school uniform.
Homework will be set on Google Classroom. Work will be set on a Thursday and should be submitted by the following Monday.
Useful websites to support home learning:
We encourage all pupils to access these websites on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis. If you have difficulty accessing the internet or these websites at home, please let me know and I will arrange a time for your child to access the school's computing suite.
I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Please feel free to send an email or make an appointment through the school office.
